David Mendonca

Director – Finance

Get in touch

My specialist area is Accountancy & Finance

Director of the Senior Finance practice at Cedar with a strong network in Technology, Telco, Consumer and Financial Services as well as VC/PEs’, with proven success securing Senior Finance talent for a diverse client base ranging from startups to global FTSE 100 companies.

Having started his career recruiting Finance roles across all sectors both interim and permanent, David has gained a wealth of knowledge in attracting and securing hard-to-reach talent on a global scale, and now holds Cedar’s record for the highest Perm-biller!

David has delivered consistently on retained Search assignments, multiple-hire projects for the UK & internationally, first Finance hires for scale-ups, through to front office roles; and his consistent track record for ‘right-first-time’ delivery has given him a loyal client base he recruits exclusively for – being their first call for hiring.

In his spare time, David enjoys being outdoors with his young family, loves good food and wine, and is happiest on a Safari ride in his birthplace of South Africa.



David was fantastic in helping me transition into a role in the UK. He came highly recommended and put forward very specific roles based on multiple conversations we had. In the end he helped me secure my current role. David takes a very calm approach to a frantic job market, listening and guiding you through the process. He also really understands the business before making recommendations. –


David invested a lot of time to support me in my job search – including plenty of update calls on my application which is very rare from recruiters at times. He was open and honest from the beginning and placed me in a role I am incredibly happy in. Would recommend to support your next job search.James Hickey, Senior Finance Manager
